When the God-man passes by

The blind will see and the dead will rise

Redeemed will dance and broken wings take flight

When the God-man passes by

 

I was a hollow man

My treachery despised and rightly so

And even though my chains were gone

I’m still a slave and reaping what I’ve sown

Call it desperation, I just had to see His face

So like a child, I climbed a sycamore tree

When the God-man called my name

I knew I’d never be the same

 

‘Cause when the God-man passes by

The blind will see and the dead will rise

Redeemed will dance and broken wings take flight

When the God-man passes by

 

I was a runaway, a gypsy chasing shadows in the night

A prisoner of secrets till religion dragged my shame into the light

All my darkness was revealed, just when I thought my fate was sealed

My accusers dropped their stones and walked away

‘Cause when the God-man cleansed my name

I knew I’d never be the same

 

You can come just as you are

Let Him have your broken heart

You have never run too far

There is freedom in His scars

 

When the God-man passes by
